This book describes the Unua language of Malakula, Vanuatu. The island of Malakula is known to have, or to have had, a total of about 40 distinct languages of which fewer than half have been described. The 700 or so speakers of Unua are also fluent speakers of Bislama and the domains of use for Unua are becoming more restricted. Unua is thus endangered and the documentation of the language in its present form is very timely.
